Mitsubishi’s world debut at Paris

Published: 15 September 2008

Mitsubishi today released this mysterious teaser photo of a new car – thought to be the new Colt – that will make its world debut at next month’s 2008 Paris motor show. It’s hard to see much from the shadowy pixels that have been issued: it looks like a generic, modern Mitsu with the Lancer‘s deep grille and wedgy headlamps.

CAR expects Mitsubishi to show a heavily revised Colt at the Paris show on 2 October 2008. Insiders refer to it as a ‘big facelift, outside and in’. Our money would say this teaser image reveals that car for the first time.

We’ll add more details as we get hold of them. In the meantime, come back to CAR Online in the run-up to the Paris motor show – as we’ll be adding more news and photos in our special Paris show preview. And on 2 October 2008, we’ll be reporting live from Mondial de l’Automobile.
